UEW Simpa Spartans Gave Morale At Former F.S. Wedding On Kroboland
On Saturday 5th March 6, 2022, at about 10:00 AM, the Spartans of Simpa Hall arrived at Odumase Krobo—Kroboland to support their former financial secretary in the person of Mr. Hammond Baah, a former Spartan University of Education—Winneba.
Due to the Strike action of the lecturers, a lot of members weren’t on campus so only a few came.
There were about fifteen including the chief or Igwe, queen, former queen, head of operations, former priest or Okomfour, chief drummer, and some members of the executives.
Spartans is a warrior society in ancient Greece that reached the height of its power after defeating rival societies. The UEW Simpa hall Spartan society is a pressure group always prepared to overcome all weakness, overcast, oppression, slavery, depression. The members are discipline to possess the warrior kind or army attitude prepared and ready for battle. The attitude was vehemently exhibited on Kroboland.
The UEW Spartans
We are a pressure group, said the former queen and the current secretary. We stand for discipline, intelligence and we create psychosocial comfort through the attitude of singing war songs “JAMA” and dancing. We are our own morale.
Our aim is to overcome all boredom and challenges that could hinder our success in school and after school. As the saying goes “once a soldier—always a soldier” so for Spartans “once a Spartan—always Spartan”.
Some of these morale or Jama songs were chanted at the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Nazareth congregation, Saisi at Agormanya in the eastern region of Ghana where Hammond Baah, former Spartan and Salome had their marriage consecrated by the Minister-in-charge, Reverend Emmanuel Atteh, and session and the clergy from St. John’s Anglican Church—Nuaso and Klo Agogo Presby. The wedding began at 12:00PM and ended at 2:20 PM.
The wedding reception continued at Kalamazoo, a popular event center on Krobo land.
PERFORMANCE BY UEW SIMPA SPARTANS
The Spartans began their “Jama” or war songs by first giving honor to their chief or king and the queen; this is respect, this is honour. They proceed to sing low pitch songs without drumming. They do this to draw the attention of Spartans. Drumming, clapping, hitting of bamboo sticks against and clapping emerges as their energy rises.
They gave a fabulous and fantastic performance at the wedding reception where the groom, the former financial secretary came from his high table to drum exhibit some of his Sparta traits. Later the bride also joined. They both sing and dance to the Jama songs.
Some of the former members on the Kroboland also joined the UEW simpa hall Spartans make the day a memorable one. The Jama praise and dance was mostly led by Opoku Kofi Danquah.
The Way of life of UEW Spartans is incomparably exceptional even though they have soiled the name of Spartans in the eyes of many other school societies on campus and off-campus. These are good and honorable peoples who do things according to society’s disciplines.
